North Warnborough is an area that was held by King Harold before the Norman invasion of 1066, and today, North Warnborough consists of a conservation area, bounded by Mill Corner in the north and The Street in the south. Most of the village’s 40 listed buildings lie within the conservation area. The Cat is in the centre of the conservation area and is within close proximity of The Millhouse and North Warnborough Green which has the ford and gives access to the canal and extensive walks.
The property is located about mile from the charming village of Odiham. There is excellent schooling in the area including Mayhill, Buryfields and Robert May’s.Contact McCarthy Holden in Odiham to view – by phone 01256 704851
